Our prediction for this League 2 match:
Scunthorpe United and Cambridge United face each other at Sands Venue Stadium in what is expected to be a close encounter. The Iron made anything but flying start to the season, with the team collecting only four points from possible 15, and it is no wonder the odds for away win have been dropping. It has to be noted that Scunthorpe experienced all sorts of problems at the back in a 4-1 loss to Forest Green.
Cambridge United, on the other hand, are eyeing their third consecutive win in all competitions. The visitors aim to overtake Morecambe in top position in the standings, and they should take advantage of Scunthorpe’s current form. A man to watch in the away team will be Paul Mullin, who scored a brace in the 2-1 win over Newport. In their last meeting in the League Two Cambridge United recorded a 2-0 win over Scunthorpe United.
